Spurs re-jig coaches and bring in Chris Powell

Former England defender Chris Powell has joined Tottenham’s academy as head of coaching.

It is the 50-year-old’s first club role since he left ADO Den Haag as Alan Pardew’s assistant in April.

Powell has previously managed Charlton, Huddersfield and Southend and is currently a coach under Gareth Southgate with the England national team.

Powell will work closely with Ryan Mason, who has stepped up from Under-19 coach to become head of player development at Spurs.



Academy manager Dean Rastrick, who has been at the club for 10 years, will assume overall responsibility for the academy programme.

John McDermott left his role as head of academy earlier in the year to join the Football Association while Nigel Gibbs has departed to take up a coaching position at Cercle Brugge.

Chairman Daniel Levy said: “We have taken considerable time to review our staffing structure over the past few months following John McDermott’s departure to join the FA, in order to clearly identify roles and responsibilities in each area of the academy moving forward.

“We have a proud record of producing academy players that can step up to our first team and we believe Dean is the right person to ensure our player development principles and philosophies – intrinsically linked to our identity as a club – will continue to evolve and be implemented as we move forward into the new season and beyond.

“We have an incredibly talented coaching team in place throughout the academy and we believe this structure will also allow them to continue to grow and develop over the coming years under Dean’s tutelage.

“We are also pleased to welcome Chris Powell, someone our academy has known for a number of years in his various coaching roles and his experiences during a successful playing career will prove invaluable to our young players.”

Jan Vertonghen announced his departure from Spurs after eight years at the club last month and is set to join Portuguese side Benfica.

Sancho ‘not desperate to leave’ as Dortmund stay firm

Borussia Dortmund have continued their Jadon Sancho defensive with head of professional football Sebastian Kehl declaring his happiness that the winger is staying.

The 20-year-old England international is Manchester United’s primary summer target but Monday’s deadline for a deal set by the Bundesliga club passed without any kind of negotiation or resolution.

That prompted sporting director Michael Zorc to declare: “We are planning around Jadon. He will be a BVB player next season.”

Kehl has backed up that statement when asked in an interview with Sport Informations Dienst in Germany about Sancho staying at the club.

“We can all be happy. Jadon scored 17 goals and assisted 17 in the last Bundesliga season – and he can improve even further too,” he said.

“He enriches this team. We need players who make the difference.

“Unfortunately, we’re currently missing Marco Reus, and we lost Achraf Hakimi, but apart from him, we’ve kept the team together. That was an important goal this summer.”

Obviously this is all and we seem to have fallen into that trap.

Sky Sports’ Kaveh Solhekol says Sancho isn’t desperate to leave Dortmund this summer.

 

“Manchester United are saying that one of the obstacles to the deal being done was the issue of Sancho’s wages and agent fees.

“But he wasn’t asking for that much in wages. He wasn’t asking for more than players of similar quality and age.

“You can look at the Sancho saga in three ways. First is the point of Manchester United, who have made Sancho their No. 1 target and they’re still going to try and sign him.

“Dortmund’s point of view is that Sancho isn’t going anywhere.

“They don’t need to sell him, he’s got a long-term contract.

“Then there’s the player’s point of view, which is very important.

“Sancho is not desperate to leave Borussia Dortmund.

“He’s willing to go and play for Manchester United. I think he’d quite like to move to Old Trafford this summer but he knows he’s only 20.

“He knows he’s already at a great club in the Champions League and he knows other big clubs are watching him.

“When the time is right he’ll get a big move.”
